I can't believe I have a 2 year old already! Although he hit the terrible 2's months ago! Time flies by so quickly!
I love birthdays especially Birthday's for those that I really adore. So the night before his birthday Blake and I decorated the house with streamers, balloons, and his brightly wrapped presents.
I know these are both really blurry, but I love the look on his face. He was so excited when we woke him up that morning and there were balloons coving the hall floor. He loves balloons!!
And this second one I think is a picture that I took through a Balloon, its kinda cool, but kinda creepy at the same time!
He is just a little bit spoiled. Blake and I were saying afterwords that we felt kinda bad cause most of these presents just had clothes in them. Not anything too exciting except for the little trike (that he still hasn't figured out how to pedal on) and a cute little T ball set Blake picked out for him.
Then we had family over for a BBQ. Blake made yummy hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill and I made homemade root beer (extra yummy!!) Some of the family
Pretty much just Nixon, and Grandmas and Grandpa's in this shot!
More Grandparents, someone's butt and Daddy!!
Before opening presents Nixon had a little bit of fun playing with his new T ball set
Then he opened presents, once again getting spoiled rotten!
New pj's from Grandma and Grandpa Great (G & G Cook)
A Jack in the box
Another surprise from Grandma Corrie and Pampa Jeff
And a fun slide from Grandma Nancie and Papa Bob as you can see all the kids had so much fun playing on it.
Another huge hit was a box of cars that Grandma Corrie and Pamp Jeff got for Nixon. The first thing he did was line them all up so we could all check them out.
After lining them up on the sidewalk, he had to line them up on the slide.
Then go down with them.
Aunt Tauna and Uncle Chad gave him a hand-me-down practically new EXCABATOR!! (excavator, yes I do know how to spell it right, thats how Nixon pronounces it, SO DANG CUTE!!) Nixon loves it, but is still trying to figure out how to make it do without Mommy or Daddy holding the pedal down!
Aunt Tauna helping make it go.
And isn't this fire truck darling, from Aunt Patrice, Uncle Bob, Broc, and Haley. It drives and shoots bubbles out!
He had such a great birthday!
I will later post the second part of the birthday celebrations that took place the next weekend with all nixon's friends!!
